Piramal Haveli..A Neemrana non hotel Hotel

Rainy days in Delhi takes me back to memories,reminiscense of rainy days enjoyed . It was a rainy day at Piramal Haveli.Piramal Haveli is situated in Bagar,enroute Shekhawati.Piramal Haveli is a Neemrana non hotel Hotel. Neemranification as their site says has now come to symbolise a new blend of restoration,rebuilding and revitalization of ruined architectural wonders.

To find simplicity and style you must visit Neemrana..its an authentic Indian Experience.
Aman Nath and Francis Wacziarg are the founder members of Neemrana.. read more about them here

The blockprints,the antique and  wooden feel,the blues of Piramal Haveli,the long corridors,the long windows,the old and haunting feel of the haveli..that still remembers its was beauty with no bounds..We were there for a  quick lunch..This was the first Neemrana we visited and many more Neemrana's to come.

the Piramal gate and hence the name Piramal Haveli

beautiful wide view

loved the wide angle 
the moody and the rainy day

flowers strewn all over in rain
blockprints and chairs dressed,loved the prints on them
loved the corridors,white washed

blushing and eyepopping

all wet,bougainvilleas cascading
yellow bars and old tiles stuck on walls

old tiles ..a ganapati ji 

loved the choice of textiles

yellows and pinks happily intermingled

long windows and views and the greenery

seating arrangement

beautiful choice of furniture,my type

beautiful colours..blues,greens ...a rainy day

courtyards,the fresh smell of rains

the blue lanterns hung

the details in the doors

Prabuddha Dasgupta an Inspiration!

Prabhuddha Dasgupta and his images still keep flashing in mind and I still think about him. He shouldnt have gone so soon, it wasn't the time for him, But then Why...Life has its own ways ..

Years back, in Vogue..the images that caught everybodys attention..that was the first time, even I knew about him.
Although he preffered the monochrome images, the colours that came across in  his images were extraordinary. They reflected  the rich colours of India and always left me trying to learn a lot from his images. Seasons and its colours were best shown by him. There was always a sense of connection which we could establish in his images and he had the power of bringing extraordinary beauty in the ordinary. Intensity in all forms could be found in all his images ,it seems the images speak a thousand words.

As TOI reports "An intense man with so many Auras, India's Avedon Prabhuddha Dasgupta wanted to give us images that burnt in our memory long after they were seen no more''.

Lakshmi Menon as "Frida Kahlo"

the ordinary into an extraordinary.

the colours richly captured
loved all the blues

mellow yellows..,bright yellows

colour combinations..yellows and browns
